The Pope’s Visit to the UK

Cards on the table here, I’m a religious agnostic.

However, the Pope’s visit to the UK makes me think.

His basic message is that, ‘A country that turns its back on religion has lost its moral compass. And this opens up a vacuum that could easily be filled by undesirables.’

History provides plenty of examples to justify that point of view. And when I see the motley collection of vociferous clowns who have lined up too pooh-pooh the state visit of the spiritual leader of a billion people, such as …

Richard Dawkins … he of the God Delusion, 435 pages of criticism and Mickey taking that never comes up with an alternative …

Polly Toynbee … the loony left bird who writes for the Guardian …

Stephen Fry … a supercilious smart-arse who tweets for a living …

Sally Bercow … the weird wife of the weird Speaker of the House of Commons …

And

Peter Tatchell … leading light in Outrage, the Gay Action Group … whatever that entails …

… it’s enough to drive a man to God.
